Moon Mysteries is a unique and
beautiful combination of breathtaking
images, ancient matriarchal teachings and
personal stories. Sims and Seeds boldly
address the menstrual disconnect that
women have been undergoing for centuries,
but not without offering remedies to
heal this split. Moon Mysteries invites all
women to reclaim the wild and inherent
menstrual wisdom that is their birth right.

This book is the vision of three women with a deep and wholehearted interest in reclaiming what is mysterious about

women’s wisdom. The connection between women and the moon is linked to something more ancient and matriarchal

than many of us know, and Moon Mysteries was written to help us reclaim the wisdom that lies there.

Moon Mysteries is filled to the brim with what inspires us most. Because we are interested in the rich history of our female ancestors we researched and explored subjects on the goddess, the etymology of female-based words and ancient matriarchal civilizations. We have been looking for this book for well over a decade. It was born out of conversations based on our own search. The idea for Moon Mysteries came while we were sitting at our kitchen tables over many cups of tea, tears, and laughter.

The concept of 13 moons, or chapters, came from an old 1810 Farmers Almanac, in which each moon of the lunar year was outlined and given a name to describe the season associated with it’s cycle. For example the first moon of the historical Farmers Almanac was known as The Wolf Moon, because this full moon appeared when wolves howled in hunger outside the villages.

Each chapter of our book has been named in a similar way and is dedicated to exploring a component of the female psyche as it relates to the blood cycle. 

There are thirteen chapters in our book, because there are thirteen moons in a lunar year, and consequently thirteen menstrual cycles for a woman.

It is our belief that images found throughout the book are a kind of wisdom in themselves, and we suggest that you let them influence your experience. It has been said that healers of indigenous traditions not only prescribe medicinal tinctures for their patients’ healing, but they also suggest certain images for the patients to meditate upon. These images are known to be medicine for the soul. It is with this sentiment in mind that our book has been illustrated and we believe that the illustrations found within are a vital part of the reader’s experience.

It is our sincere hope that Moon Mysteries will remind women everywhere of the sacredness of the blood cycle.

The connection between women and the moon reveals a mysterious and inherent wisdom that is a part of all women, and has been, since the most ancient of times.
